The Arc would like our members and supporters to consider this message from United Way of Midland County:

Good afternoon,
Valuing Older Adults Starts with Your Vote…Midland’s elder population is booming! By 2018, 26% of the population will be over 60: equaling roughly 3,500 more seniors than in 2013. Most want to remain living in their own homes, a far more comfortable and economical choice than the cost of nursing home care. For many, staying in their home requires supports and services such as Meals on Wheels, Respite, Transportation, and Home Care services; programs Senior Services proudly provides to our community.
On August 5, the Senior Millage will be on the ballot with a modest increase of .15 mil requested for the first time in 12 years bringing the total millage request to .9 mil. The decision to seek this increase is based on the strong need to keep up with escalating demand and ensure the continued ability to enhance the quality of life of Midland’s older citizens.
Please make sure to get to the polls on August 5.
Valuing older adults starts here!

Our Mission

 

The Arc of Midland is a nonprofit organization which promotes the general welfare of people with developmental disabilities and increases their presence, participation and inclusion in the community.

 

Statement of Values

Community Building

The Arc helps to build a community that values and includes all citizens.

Respect

We respect all individuals, including people with diverse cultures, history, and beliefs.

Advocacy

We advocate for all citizens to be welcomed and included in community life.

Inclusion

Inclusion is the way to foster relationships that will allow all citizens to be safe, respected community members.

Trust

We trust families, people who work in systems, and the community to do what they say they will do.

Creativity

We encourage creativity and diverse thinking.

Our Programs and activities are strongly supportive of the goals of the United Way of Midland County

The United Way of Midland County focuses its resources on four key areas of impact in our community-strengthening families, increasing self-sufficiency, nurturing children and youth and promoting health. Working with 25 agency partners, we support local results-oriented “safety net” programs focused on meeting basic human needs programs for those most vulnerable in our community.

Strengthening Families

Through the work of local agencies, families are given the opportunity to establish and improve healthy relationships through tailored programs and activities offered in our community.

Increasing Self-Sufficiency

Those in our community with disabilities or who find themselves in difficult or threatening situations are offered programs and services to help get them back on their feet.

Nurturing Children & Youth

Local agencies offer creative ways to provide healthy recreational and educational activities for today’s youth, while exposing them to positive and influential role models.

Promoting Health

Programs and services offered through our local agencies that promote healthy and safe living as well as support those coping with illness or addiction.
